TfL announce £8.6 million to be spent on West Ealing streets

Transport for London have today announced a bumper fund of £8.6 million will be made available to Ealing Council to improve West Ealing streets in the run up to Crossrail fully opening in 2019.

The press release, which can be seen here, states:

Proposals include comprehensive improvements along the Broadway and to parallel quieter routes, reduced rat-running in the adjoining residential areas, parking controls, and new walking and cycling routes, including links to the new Elizabeth line station

West Ealing station plans

There’s little information beyond this on what this involves exactly or what streets will be closed to traffic.

Improved cycle links to West Ealing station will be welcome. With many more people moving to the area increased walking and cycling is essential to prevent increased traffic clogging the streets.

For the first time in a while I saw staff working at the station this week. It had previously been announced that upgrade works had been delayed.

Further details of the scheme will be revealed shortly and covered on this site.

    Traffic-free? Surely not excluding foot traffic, and cycle traffic? I think you mean motor-traffic free…

    I am very concerned that these “improvements” go ahead without rigorous, legal and meaningful consultation.
    TfL generated 1C Corridor “improvements” came like tablets of stone from on high and consultation amounted to a tick-box exhibition approving the done deal. This does not work. There are a group of experts drawn from the community who care and have developed skills over the years. Better to listen to them.
